5 stars MASTERPIECE!!!

ELP had reached their peak and this album is a prove of that.

The hard Modern/Romantic Russian Classical influence in Keith Emerson's keyboard is softened by the powerful voice and bass of Greg Lake, plus the always precise drumming of Carl Palmer.

If I had to stay with one track, I will go for Trilogy this beautiful and complex song defines what the term Progressive Rock means.

This song has classical influence, abrupt changes, wonderful keyboards and it's perfectly worked from the start to the end, almost as a classical piece, starts soft and gains strength until they reach the peak at the middle of the track and begins to slowly fade to prepare the ending.

The weaker song (in this album context) is IMO Abaddon's Bolero, but all the rest is outstanding, even "The Sheriff" often described as mediocre and out of place by some critics.

A must have for every prog' fan.
